“Feeling like my C-section looks cute today!” the 39-year-old star quipped.

Some of her famous friends agreed.

“Whatever transported Genie on this planet is to be relished,” wrote friend Jessica Seinfeld, wife of comedian Jerry. “P.S. body.”

“Feel like mine lookin’ hot today too! What a coincidence!” singer Vanessa Carlton, mom to a 5-year-old, responded, while writer Lesley Arfin added, “Uh yeah it does. Mine looks like the Pringles guy.”

Many of Schumer’s fans also left comments praising her body-positive message and sharing their own C-section stories.

“Amy, you are amazing!!” read one comment. “Thanks for being that real! We all can be so proud of our bodies!”

“Amen sister! Scars are beautiful,” another fan wrote.

“Beautiful body! I need to love my C-section more,” read another comment, while one follower told Schumer, “That scar represents power, life and healing. You’re beautiful.”

Schumer’s C-section scar will be her last, according to comments she’s recently made ruling out going through another pregnancy. During her pregnancy with Gene, she struggled with extreme nausea and vomiting as a result of hyperemesis.

“I, for my safety, cannot be pregnant again,” she revealed during a recent episode of the Anna Faris is Unqualified podcast. “One in three mothers with hyperemesis, what I had, one in three babies don’t make it. So I really don’t like those odds. Just because you’re vomiting so much you can’t nourish your baby or yourself, so my pregnancy was a huge bummer.”

But she and husband Chris Fischer are interested in having another child, which has prompted them to explore surrogacy. After documenting her “awful” IVF process last year, Schumer has since said that her plans to add to their family are on hold, though she does have two embryos that could be implanted into a gestational carrier.

Schumer hasn’t shied away from showing off her scar in the past.
